Gaming Habits Of America Infographic Detailed

Listen to this article

The language of video games is international. Whether we’re thrown onto the battlefield against each other or are helping one another maneuver through fantastical multi-colored landscapes, the digital realm is an environment where all are welcome.

It’s also a place where old friends can come and rekindle their relationships, take the UK and the USA for example. Our countries have a long history, with its fair share of ups and downs, but spend half an hour in the company of our Trans-Atlantic cousins and you’ll soon realize that we’re not so different.

That’s not to say there aren’t any differences. The USA is a country like no other, and as with everything, they take things to the extreme, even gaming. But just how popular is it? Well…

  • In 2016 the video game industry contributed $11.7 billion in value to US GDP
  • In 2016 the video game industry directly employed 65,678 people

So it’s safe to say gaming is popular in America. But how does the average American interact with video games on a day to day basis? Online hosting providers WestHost recently conducted a survey with the intention of finding out!

They converted some of the more eye-catching statistics from the survey into an infographic, which you can take a look at below.
